Canadians have spoken. You want a government with a vision and an agenda for this country that is positive and ambitious and hopeful. I promise you that I will lead that government.
While the dust is still settling from this historic change in governance, one thing is clear, Canadians gave Mr. Trudeau the helm of the country and a very strong mandate to evoke the change that Canadians aspire to see in our government.
Mr. Trudeau and the Liberals will be replacing the current leadership, Stephen Harper and his Conservatives who have been in power just shy of ten years. While much can be said, both good and bad, about the decade-long Harper/Conservative legacy, his government has made sweeping changes in its tenure that have irrevocably transformed the Canadian Immigration landscape.
As a bit of background for anyone who doesn’t know, Justin Trudeau is no stranger to Canadian politics. In fact, Justin was born during his father’s tenure as Prime Minister in the 1970s. To attribute his victory solely to Canadians nostalgia over his father, Pierre Elliot Trudeau, and his family’s political dynasty in Canada would be a disservice to Justin’s charisma, experience and insight into the mindset of the Canadian electorate.
The Liberal Party of Canada has, for decades, traditionally been the most sympathetic Canadian political party when it comes to the immigration file. During Pierre Trudeau’s leadership in the 1970’s they pledged official support to the Canadian notion of multiculturalism. Multiculturalism, in a Canadian context, means integrating newcomers into Canadian society without forcing them to shed their own unique identity and culture. This progressive stance on multiculturalism helped define Canada as a nation that is accepting of immigrants and, not surprisingly, helped win the hearts and minds of many new Canadians.
As a party with a strong base of support from Canadian newcomers, the Liberals have a lot to live up to, in order to keep their constituents happy. But with a pledge of $500 million and a majority government, I think we can be cautiously optimistic that these changes will be enacted in a timely manner.
Congratulations Justin on a job well done.
